Well, I have exciting news. I’d said that if my first live stream went well and was received OK I’d consider doing more. Guess what? Thanks to you, the listeners / watchers, it went over incredibly well and was received wonderfully! Not bragging, just expressing my gratitude and delight! Sooooooo……. I have another very special, meaningful live stream coming up on December 23rd, 2020 at 8:00PM Eastern Time. I call it, “One Beautiful Night.”
The title has its roots in a song I wrote for Christmas about 20 years ago. The subject of the live stream is the reading of the greatest story ever told – “The Christmas Story.” There are four different narrators helping out with this one. I’ll be the musician guy interspersing music between narrations.
This 20 minute prerecorded production will air on YouTube (versus just Facebook like the first one). This way, everyone will be able to tune in and watch – don’t have to be a Facebook friend of mine.
Well, I’m so happy, proud and more than anything RELIEVED that my Live Stream Christmas Mini Concert on Sunday night, December 6th, 2020 went well. Actually, way better than I expected. Thank you to everyone that took the time out of their schedule to sit and watch / listen to this little Christmas Mini Concert. And thanks for all the kind words as well.
The reason for this going live on YouTube is quite simple: Because so many folks asked for it so they could watch again. My plan was to just broadcast it live once and that’s all she wrote. Well, I guess I was wrong. I didn’t expect as strong a response to it all. But also (and this is sorta my fault – I’m still a little new to live streaming) because I chose to stream this on my Facebook Timeline. Translated, that limited it to only my Facebook friends. Had I put it on my “Mike Thomas Music” Facebook Page, everything woulda been fine as THAT page is public. Oh well. Live and learn I always say. So by putting it on YouTube, now it can be viewed and shared by you or anyone that sees it and wants to show it to others (and please do by the way … the more publicity on this, the better for everyone in the grand scheme).
If I have my way, there’ll definitely be more live streams similar to this from yours truly doing my musical performing, storytelling, interactions and more. And like I say, I’ll broadcast those upcoming streams on my Mike Thomas Music (public) Facebook Page. You can find that page HERE by the way.
Once more time, my profound thanks and appreciation to all those who attended. Hope to see Y’all soon. For now, continued Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.
